    For the last one, bear in mind that for a time after the initial launch of gmail, they couldn't call it that in the UK because there was already a British company doing some sort of email thing under the name gmail, so for UK users, they called it googlemail, with the .com TLD. (I still have one account where I've distributed it in multiple places under its googlemail.com name...)

    It is, nevertheless, severely lame that they flagged that as a spam domain.

    I guess they forgot that they also own googlemail.

    With people rotating in and out of the responsible teams the historic knowledge is surprisingly easy to forget unless it is well documented in configuration and code.

    GMail regularly does the same with emails from other Google properties, such as Google Analytics. I see it all the time with our work emails via Google Apps/G Suite/whatever it's called this week.

    That huge price is not too far off (within a ppm) from 2^128, but I wonder why that system seems to be using unsigned 128-bit arithmetic.
